Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans
Dr. Norbert Weiss is responsible for the entries in the DSM Bacterial Nomenclature Up-to-Date. He writes: Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans was validly transferred to the genus Haemophilus in 1985 by Potts et al. as Haemophilus actinomycetemcomitans comb. nov. In 1987, the ICSB Subcommittee on Pasteurellaceae and Related Organisms did not favor this transfer (IJSB 37:474) but the statement "is not favored", nomenclaturally, does not change the valid transfer. Many workers especially from medical field, however, prefer the old name Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans or use Actinobacillus (Haemophilus) actinomycetemcomitans. rRNA cistron similarity studies by De Ley and coworkers (IJSB 40:126-137) indicate that there is a need for a radical rearrangement of genera and species within the family Pasteurellaceae but no decision has been taken up to now. Actinomycetemcomitans most probably deserves its own genus.
